According to reports, Manchester United is considering a last-minute move to bring in Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest before the transfer deadline
According to a report by Sky Sports writer Dharmesh Sheth, United manager Erik ten Hag is considering a last-ditch effort to recruit the 21-year-old Barca sensation.
Ten Hag is said to be a huge fan of the American international because to their time spent together at Ajax.
United’s interest in Dest is a result of rumors that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will leave Old Trafford.
And Ten Hag appears to have the ideal alternative in mind in the event that Wan-Bissake does depart this summer.
Sheth believes that late in the transfer window, United might try to sign the Barcelona defender:
The teenage right-back for Barcelona is an extremely talented player who possesses all the skills necessary to succeed at the highest level.
He moves quickly and enjoys taking advantage of any chance to do so. If necessary, he can even play as a winger further forward.
Gregg Berhalter, the manager of the United States, commended Dest and said the following to Goal in October:
Dest is expected to cost roughly €25 million (£21.5 million) this summer, according to Barca Universal.
Dest recorded 1.3 tackles, 0.8 clearances, 1.8 dribbles, and three assists in 21 La Liga games for Barcelona last season.
Dest is undoubtedly a promising young artist, even though he is far from being finished. The American will surely go on to become a major star with appropriate coaching.
Dest would be a wise acquisition for United this summer, especially at around £21 million.
